The art department at Franklin College provides theoretical and practical education in a variety of options for completing an art major or minor program.

The art program is designed to develop students’ broad appreciation of art and their ability to create art through curricular offerings of art history and art studio experiences. Both art major and art minor programs allow two possible tracks: one primarily focusing on the study of art history and the other on developing studio skills. The goal of both options is to develop students’ understanding of the major periods/styles in visual arts and to encourage students to explore their own creativity in drawing, painting, sculpting, and designing. The art history program offers a study of visual concepts and the major art movements within the historical period which produced them and gives students an understanding and appreciation of artistic endeavor and experience. The art studio major is designed to develop students’ skills for creating art/design while developing an appreciation of art/design and an understanding of art history.

Major Requirements

A major in art requires the student to have a minimum graduation GPA of 2.00 (A=4.00) in required major courses. All courses for majors must be completed with a grade of C-or better. A grade or C-or better is required for all prerequisite courses regardless of academic major
